. >> it is a surprise but also, i guess, a big challenge because use live the pope, according to the catholic religion, he is effectively god's representative on earth. not the sort of job you resign from. if you remember, " john paul ii the died in 2005, the predecessor, it was a very long illness and it was obvious to everyone the pope was not well. but the vatican has a way of keeping things going, keeping up assad going, at least, up until the pope passes on and then a new one is elected. his is a very strange situation. unknown situation. my vatican sources are telling me that it is probably not going to be the same procedure that would have happened had hoped benedick died. using that is followed by a mourning period and then a conclave, calling to run the princes of the church, 100 or so carnots that represent the catholic church from the world. a sealed themselves and decided to should be elected. the conclave obviously will have to happen regardless. we will not have a mourning period because the pope has not passed away. very interesting. we have the date of the resignation, february 28. i t
. many say the church is on a slope to being a third world religion and it's looking to many like the next pontiff will come from latin america or africa. i'd like to see a progressive american become pope and usher this church into the 20th 20th century or maybe the 18th or 19th centuries. if you travel this country and visit churches, as i do, you'll see older congregations and a priest who is not from america more often than not. something that to be done if they want to save this church. i could talk all night about the fact that the c. >> jennifer:celibacy rule is antiquated. it's the man made hang ups of an unauthorized fan club getting in the way of a lot of people. the facebook one religious group in our people are people raised religious and feel spiritual but let down by american religion. >> 24% identify with religion today that they were raised in. i want to ask you about money and the church. i'm going to get skeptical on you. how big a driving force is the ability for a european pope or to a degree an american pope to raise money for the church, where they would avoi
, that the religion is what it is, and you live by the rules because that's what the faith is about. what is faith? what is the church? what should be the right rules? and maybe the expedience of the moments, if we just adjust to the times, you se some sense of what the faith is at its core. that's certainly the orthodox position. on the other hand, you've got lots of catholics from my generation who want to see it be more exclusive and sclus inclus inviting, and would want that from the pope. >> especially when it comes to birth control. mary ann walsh sort of pooh-poohed that, but it is very important to catholic women. almost 90% of catholic women have taken birth control at some point in their lives. >> and there are no women priests or women in positions of power, not to denegrate in any way the nuns and the amazing influence they had on many lives, including mine as a catholic student. but this pope himself, very interesting, called the rottweiler of god, so strict to orthodoxy, he got into a point of confusion, right, because when he was talking about africa, the first time that they talked
cathedral, he renewed respect for his argument that religion should stay at the heart of public life. over the last few years, catholicism has grown in the developing world. in its birthplace of europe, he has found the tides of secularism, all but impossible to stem. the pope defended moslems by quoting historical criticisms of it is lomb. -- islam. he has faced criticism over the handling of the sexual abuse crisis. he has been accused of doing too little to prevent abuse by priests. >> there is a suspicion that they were being shielded by j.p. ii rather than by him. >> he hoped he could build up a struggle church, but in seven years, there was little that he could do. >> for more on what this means, i enjoined by the professor at the catholic university of america. thank you for coming in. were you surprised by this announcement? >> in one sense, yes, because popes do not do this. in another sense, no. pope benedict is a very humble man and realistic man. the job requires energies of mind and body that he no longer has. he has felt free to step down. it is the end of an era, it is the b

much that can be laid at the pope's feet? >> the purpose of a religion is to help people make sense of the big questions, the questions that none of us have answers to. why are we here, where are we going, why do we suffer, what happens after death. it's important a church or any religion engage with its people and meet them where they are. it's to help people find meaning. when a religion stops helping people find meaning people will turn to consumerism, to culture, and the pope is so busy declaring our culture, the culture of death, you know, putting the responsibility on us. >> you are laying this on the pope's feet. you're saying this person that comes out of cdf and the person who was the chief theologian is alienating the flock in the u.s. and europe where church membership as decline. >> he and the hierarchy of a. they have denied the crisis in the priesthood. >> i think it's doctrinal declarations are beautiful. they are out of time. it's precisely the crisis we haven't addressed. i was with some priests at dinner the other night teaching at a catholic university, living in
. another issue is how to have dialogue, with religions, the great rise of islam. how are we going to truly dialogue with these religions, in order to reach a truth, the truth, which we believe as roman catholics. and i think a third issue is, many of the problems that the world faces, the church too needs to tackle. for example, beginning of life issues, end of life issues. how do we deal with marriage? how do we deal with the sanctity of marriage. how do we deal with moral issues. how do we deal with the economic crisis? that's what people want to hear. that's what people need to hear in the world we're living in, in order that we give them hope. i think i heard something that i think is very important, when you said, chris, pope john paul ii opened people's hearts. pope benedict filled people's hearts. he was a theologian. so now, what i think we need is somehow who allows people to take what they have received and now use it in their lives for the good of others. >> monsignor, thank you for coming over. liz lev, thank you, they will be staying with us and we'll be talking to them later

[applause] but now, now, some people say, they say well, that's not fair. because it doesn't hurt the guy who made 10 billion dollars as much as the guy who made 10. where does it say you have to hurt the guy. >> megyn: and now brad, a former deputy assistant to president george w. bush and dan, the president of gotham ghost writers. an interesting question posed by miss crowly whether it was disrespectful and some on the panel, say it was disrespectful for the doctor to speak this way before the president at the national prayer breakfast. dan, your thoughts? >> i teach a class at nyu and the first thing i tell my students he when you're talking about judging ethical behavior context is the most important thing. if dr. karr son said this at rnc convention at the heritage foundatio
pullback, making stocks plunge 50%. is there any chance we got religion too soon on spending now? it is hurting business confidence. >> i don't think we got any religion on spending, we haven't cut any spending. we are not in danger of doing anything to the spending side that would hurt the economy. that is an old keynesian argument that it could be increasing the wealth of the country. it is an illusion, causing mal investment. placed in things the government chooses, not things that the government wants. in any way would hurt the economy, think it would help the economy. imagine what the stock market would do if we were going to fix entitlements permanently. the stock market would rally to that. dennis: we are on the way, hope. thank you for being with us, senator rand paul. >> thank you. dennis: a bottle of wine, food on the vine. how they're making money financing winemakers and small business, big ideas, coming up. sandra: long-running battle over the creation of dolls. dennis: first, take a look at the 10-year treasury.

religions, actual religions and i think that, look, there's ways that people can take days off for their special days. i think though that you're going to be looked at funny if you insist you need halloween off. i think it's insulting if you're a wiccan or a pagans and if you're an atheist or a pagans, if you're celebrating nature, an everyday experience. >> tucker: only a country too rich too long could be this frivolous and silly. the statements from the school, the information about the wiccan and pagans holidays, the statement says, has been in the guide since last fall. keep in mind this is not intended just for faculty, this is an informational guide for anyone across campus. letting you know. >> letting you know which days you can take. >> tucker: and christianity and comes down to-- >> i think that there's a rejection of tradition. i think this is again, not about elevating anyone else, it's about paganses and wiccans used for a political agenda to downgrade what's important to a majority of americans. i think that this is an anti-tradition action. i think paganses and
's an election, consisting of the cardinals, the religion, will meet in rome to decide on a new pope. that will happen before the end of march. again, there had been reports in the past couple of months that his health had been failing, that he had difficulty reading text, and he had in the past suggested if popes had problem in office with their health, that, in fact, that they should step down. he followed his own message. in fact, he will be stepping down less than eight years into his papacy. to show how historic this is, guys, the last time this happened was 600 years ago. that happened to be pope gregory in the year 1415. we just heard a press conference from vatican officials in the past ten minutes or so and they looked surprised. they said they got this information this morning. so secrecy is the name of the game in the vatican. benedict is his name. he is a german. he was a strong conservative. they called him the enforcer in the church prior to becoming a pope. the pope's rotweiler, referring to a dog, that's how he was referred to as well. the choice of ratzinger as pope
campaigned. >> steve did all day. >> i'm the right age. >> call him now? >> and the right religion. >> 42 years. you know, what's interesting to me about this is you're right. you know, benedict is mr. inside and his election, first of all, there were so many reasons why it was sort of doubtful, he was an unlikely choice. likely but unlikely in 2005. election was made possible by rules change that pope john paul ii put in place in 1996 and took the old super jorkt with two thirds of the cardinals to agree an they have as many ballots it took and he said after 30 ballots, a mere 30 ballots, majority rule wins and when somebody gets a majority, end the process because the majority hangs on and then win and probably enabled benedict to win in 2005. almost unanimous and four ballots and that's it. he did away with the rules change and so we have reverted the two thirds majority and it's the only way that pope john paul ii would have become the pope. there was sort of two candidates duking it out and he was the compromise choice and the unlikely, nobody thought him, polish guy with a chance. a
the relationship between reason and faith and the place of religion in a secular world. i think the truth, judy, is all of of those things have validity. all of them add up to the full picture of a pope who had his strengths and his weaknesses. i think will undoubtedly be remembered for both. >> woodruff: monsignor hilgartner all of that plays into the question of what role will he play in the selection of his successor? he won't have a vote but he selected more than half of the cardinals who will be doing the picking. >> he has selected more than half. there was a question as to whether or not he would participate. and the holy sea clarified this morning in the middle of all the other news that he would not participate. but his influence is clear. i think even his statement this morning about recognizing that there are major things that the church needs to address and do that he doesn't feel that he has the stamina to be able to accomplish really sets the stage for the cardinals when they gather to begin to look at and discuss and reflect on what those issues are. as they then move into the co
the church's attitudes towards the pro life movement. things of freedom of religion. >> we cardinals, larry, know that the growing part of the catholic church around the world is the church that -- to deconstruct that. catholic light has no future. so this is all rather silly. we're not going to see changes in the catholic doctrine because that doesn't change. the question is how does the next pope and the bishops he appoints and the priests they ordain and all the people of the church live this new -- have called us to. >> cathy, february 28th is the conclave. who's your favorite right now? give me a pick. >> i have no picks, but it's interesting. every single cardinal in the college was appointed by either pope john paul ii or benedict xvi. there are three under the age of 60. there are a number of them between 60 and 70. there are a lot of young cardinals. nobody can vote if you're over 80. benedict will not be voting. this is a good college. it will continue. it will be in harmony with the two popes that elevated these men. so i don't think there's any question about that or any kind of
't strong enough. he defended muslims with the speech defending violent religion. among other gestures pope benedict made blue mosque. the biggest scandal he had to deal with were the widespread sandals of sex abuse against clergy. critics say he didn't do enough. formal apologies and probes in the u.s.s. ireland and elsewhere. he also had to deal with a but butler who stole documents alleging corruption in the vatican. he later pardoned him. benedict saw himself as a quiet intellectual. still he made 25 international trips. well received by crowds and tweeting spiritual messages. rolling platform to roll through st. peters. all of this leading up to momentous decision to step down when he felt he was no longer up for the job. >> pope benedict will not be involved in next month's con conclave of cardinals. he might have a silent vote. he had a big hand of choosing many of those cardinals. bill? >> greg palkot reporting live tonight from london. the pope's replacement could make history as well. experts tell us one of the top contenders is peter cardinal circleson from the country of gahanna
that claims that liberals have declared a war on religion and marriage and christmas, a channel that vilifies union members, undocumented workers in this country, and women seeking contraception coverage. the mastermind behind fox news thinks president obama has a divisive agenda? it's no wonder fox news has hit a record low in ratings and credibility. >>> tonight in our survey, i asked you, will republicans drive our economy into another recession? i was going to say into the toilet. 94% of you say yes. 6% of you say no. >>> coming up, the week-long manhunt for a trained killer is still under way. the latest on the california cop killer is next.

. they were released several hours later. i don't care much for people who use religion as a cloak to justify hatred, injustice and fear and i can't imagine god, should he or she or it exist, does either. i am so proud of my sister and niece for nighting for what they believe in, by having nerve to pray at a wall of prayer while being female. sara sidner is joining us in jerusalem. plain to us the significance of this, being at the wailing wall and what women are wearing and where they are praying. why does that matter? >> reporter: look, it's the most holy jewish site for prayer and basically what these women want is equal access to all of the nominations and those who want to practice their religion at the wall. basically they have been doing this for the past two decades. this is not a new act by these women. they call themselves women of the wall. they go down, wear the shawls, pray at the wall and they say they should be allowed to do that. the high court has put out a ruling basically saying they can go down to the property but the government has made a separate area that is not at the
. patrick's. bill: with more now, fox news religion contributor, father jonathan morris is with us this morning. father, good morning to you. can you hear me? >> i can hear you fine. there you two. bill: never sounded better by the way. your initial reaction? what do you think? >> i was shocked as cardinal dolan mentioned. he was shocked. above all because the vatican doesn't like to set new precedent. this is, this is huge in the sense that the next pope, soon as he starts getting sick or elderly, people are going to start asking him very strongly, are you ready to resign? and the reason why, in the past the popes have been very reluctant to do so, they have recognized that the main job of a pope is not to be a manager but rather to protect the teachings of the church and the teachings of the bible. to pass on something to future generations and you don't need to be in perfect health to do that. on the other hand, it is obvious that pope benedict for a good long while, like the great reporting by lauren green just there, recognized that we're living in new times and there are new
who have different sexual orientation is a fundamental struggle for many religions and catholicism and judaism included. i am reminded of the myth of the owl of minerva but says it is flies at dusk, but flies to late to help anyone, and the question for the pope is he is the owl of m minerva, and that he was not ultimately able to conquer to the satisfaction of many people, and he has done something that myself have many issues with the pope, but he has done something very important that he is a sort of modern george washington here that he has stepped back as someone who has worked in politics and watched a lot of people who never know when to say when and have no humility, but that to me strikes me as a fundamentally humble act. >> and it shows a lot of spiritual freedom, too, and rare is the person who will relinquish power voluntarily these days. so it is interesting that jesus points to this both backwards and forward and as sister was saying that the jesus is always going out to the marginalized and if jesus were here today -- >> okay. here we go. >> father, that is a great w
that in the industrialized world there is it a lot of people who don't stee the relevance of the religion and he wants to reenergize that faith. he started the uro faith . amms wrote a book evangelical of catholicism and calling for the church to deepen people's faith. janet? >> all right. thank you very much for the update. can you tell us about what comes next in the process? this pope had specific outreach, but what about the next one. you mentioned there may be interest in focusing on somebody to represent the different geoh, graphy. the process seems so secretive. >> i tomit give you ideas who may be in the top. it is important to understand the selection by what the church needs. if you go to the criteria and the church needs to reenergize. cardinal ravizi for culture. he's also the president of a different pontiffical commissions. he's leading the papal lenten retreat it is an honor to lead that retreat. two others had had . both went on to be the pope . cardinal schoola who is italian branch. they make up 25 percent of the cardinals and they center a big voting block . you can see cardinal ole

faith and religion in this country right now. can you tell us what you think the significance of this announcement is? it comes as a shock to us this morning. >> look, it's shocking to me, and i have covered this pope his entire pontificate, but when he was in the previous office he held as cardinal ratzinger, i had the only english interview with this pope at length before his election. it is curious to watch this unfo unfold. because at that time, cardinal ratzinger wanted to retire in 'the 90, '93, again in '96, up to '99. he declined each time, stopped himself and didn't retire, because of the example of the previous pope he told me in an interview, so to watch this -- i have to say, i'm taken attack by it as a journal and it's personally know itting the background and knowing his vision of wanting to reform the church and realizing he is side by side with john paul during his long convalescence, this is a pope that died before the world. taught the world how to die. a real shock to many catholics around the world and i think people of other faiths as well. and we'll see w
